Bradford Bulls' change of ownership could be ratified in a matter of days - Ryan Whitcut
Bradford Bulls are closer to having the club's change of ownership ratified by the Rugby Football League after a positive meeting today with the governing body.
The club’s new board of directors attended the meeting with Nigel Wood and Blake Solly following the club’s presentation of their business plan and proof of funding late last week.
Bulls co-owner Ryan Whitcut said after the meeting: “We have had a very positive meeting with the RFL today and have been given assurances that the RFL will move as quickly as possible to conclude the process of changing control.
"Both Nigel Wood and Blake Solly were impressed with what we have produced for them and the quality of the new directors announced in the last couple of weeks.
"We are hoping that things should be sorted out by the end of this week. We are now also in a position to proceed with the signing of Adam Henry from Sydney Roosters, which is really positive news for the club and its supporters.
Solly, the RFL's director of standards and licensing, said: “It was good to meet with the new board of directors today and hear their commitment to the club, the players and the supporters.
"We are moving as quickly as possible to conclude the process of approving the change of control, and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the directors of the club for assisting in the process.”
